Google had it with them android 13 We’ve been in a hurry over the last couple of months, because we’ve literally run through preview builds and release new interim builds several times a month. The release candidate was already available at the end of July, which is the last step before the final version, if no serious problems arise. However, that’s exactly what appears to have happened, with both the release of Android 13 and the Pixel update scheduled for August. have been moved. So far no reason.

Now it seems clear that Android 13 will not be released a few days later, but will wait for the date next month. Because the Android 13 release notes, curiously published on Monday, indicate that the operating system will be delivered at a patch level on September 1. Therefore, Android 13 can be delivered in the last week of August or the first full week of September at the earliest. My theory is that both are true.

This is how Android 13 could be released
Last year, Google officially released Android 12 and only rolled it out to Pixel smartphones two weeks later. It could work again the same way. My suggestion, without any guarantee, is that the final version of Android 13 will be released in the last week of August and then September 5 it will roll out to all current Pixel smartphones. September 5 is the first Monday of the month and would also be the date of the next Pixel Feature Drop, which probably won’t take place in September. Android 13 replaces the Drop feature, so to speak.

But the haste with which he ran through the preliminary versions was in vain. All information and a summary of the calendar can be found here in this article.

There you will also find a complete overview of all the innovations that would go too far in the overview.

Which smartphones will receive the update?
Google will supply the fourth to sixth generation Pixel smartphones with Android 13. General rule: all smartphones that were able to participate in the beta will also receive the final version. Depending on their reliability, other manufacturers may use the two-year rule: Smartphones must be serviced two years after they go on sale. So far, only concrete statements have been made.
